David Fairclough

This signed photo of David Fairclough is estimated at £10-£20.

Although known as 'Supersub' due to his knack of coming on late in games and scoring important goals, of Fairclough's 153 appearances for Liverpool only 61 were from the bench.

The striker spent eight years at the Reds but was rarely first choice due to the partnerships of John Toshack and Kevin Keegan and, later, Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush.

This signed photo of Italian football legend Marco Tardelli is estimated at £20-30.

The Italian midfielder represented his country at three World Cups – 1978, 1982 and 1986.

He is best remembered for his celebration after scoring Italy's third goal against West Germany in the 1982 World Cup final, as shown in the photo.

He later explained: "After I scored, my whole life passed before me – the same feeling they say you have when you are about to die, the joy of scoring in a World Cup final was immense, something I dreamed about as a kid, and my celebration was a release after realising that dream. I was born with that scream inside me, that was just the moment it came out."

In 2007, The Times placed Tardelli at number 10 in its list of the 50 hardest footballers in history.
